Get in-depth analysis and practical application

The Bible Speaks Today: New Testament is one of the most relevant resources for Bible study available. John Stott, series editor and author of eight volumes, and other biblical scholars accurately expound the texts, clearly explain the messages, and relate the books to contemporary life.

This extensive 22-volume set takes time to work through all New Testament passages and outline their relevance today.

Learn from John Stott’s careful exposition of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount:

“The followers of Jesus are different, different from both the nominal church and the secular world, different from both the religious and the irreligious. Here is a Christian value-system, ethical standard, religious devotion, attitude to money, ambition, lifestyle, and network of relationships—all of which are totally at variance with those in the non-Christian world.”

Discover David Prior’s fresh and gripping exposition of 1 Corinthians:

“We are unreservedly committed to the church of God where he has placed us . . . we are unhesitatingly confident about God’s desire and ability to make his church in that place like Jesus Christ; that we are uncompromisingly certain about the call for us to be holy, as he is holy.”

Raymond Brown shares encouragement and relevance in each passage of Hebrews:

“In a society obsessed by the lust for possessions, in which people who have never had so much are hungry for more, the Christian rejoices in what he has in Christ, the spiritual treasures which can never be taken away. One of the believer’s most priceless possessions is the promise of Christ’s sufficiency.”

Celebrate John Knox’s 500th Birthday with Discounts on His Works

knoxThe six-volume The Works of John Knox is on sale for a limited time! Save 20% with coupon code KNOX14 at checkout. Get it now!

Who was John Knox?

The Protestant Reformation was no stranger to controversial figures. Among the ranks of John Calvin and Martin Luther stood another giant—this one Scottish, John Knox. He, like his predecessors and mentors, generated much contention, but also inspired many to preach a pure gospel and search the Scriptures.

Little is known about Knox’s early life, though many scholars agree that he was born circa 1514 in Haddington, near Edinburgh. At 25, he was suddenly and dramatically called to the preaching ministry—a calling that he responded to with reluctance and tears. His life was tumultuous, as were the times in which he lived and preached. As Reformed doctrine crept into Scotland, he was persuaded and joined the ranks of the reformers. In a short span, Knox went from a minister’s broadsword-bearing bodyguard, to a preacher, to a galley slave, to a student of John Calvin, to a traveling preacher, to a pen-wielding prophet decrying the bloody Queen of Scots, Mary Tudor.

In 1559, after extensive traveling and writing, he returned to Scotland and “deployed his formidable preaching skills to increase Protestant militancy.” His preaching both caused riots and drew souls to love Jesus Christ, nearly in the same breath. Knox was elected the minister of the Edinburgh church, and wielding his preaching prowess as a weapon to cut the quick, applying his biblical exposition to Scotland’s situation.

the-works-of-john-knoxScotland’s political-religious climate was rapidly shifting, and there was much work to be done in the upheaval. Knox and several others, in light of the massive number of Protestant conversions, took pen to paper and wrote The Book of Church Order—upon which the entire Presbyterian church would be based. Even today, Presbyterians look to The Book of Church Order for polity and church-administration issues, and they look to Knox as their founder.

Knox is often portrayed as a fiery, courageous prophet, standing Elijah-like at the pulpit, decrying God’s enemies with a broadsword in one hand and a Bible in the other. Yet the reality is something different. Knox, by all accounts, was a timid, frail, and fragile man, who when “stripped of his God-given might and the thundering power of his calling, what remains is a mere mortal, a small man, ‘low in stature, and of a weakly constitution’.”

“Knox is a model for the ordinary Christian, especially the one who feels his own weakness but who nevertheless wants to serve Christ in a troubled world. Knox is eminently relevant to all Christians who have ever been forced to come face to face with their own littleness” (Douglas Bond, The Mighty Weakness of John Knox).

Free Book: What’s in the Word by Ben Witherington III

witw1We’ve teamed up with Baylor University Press to give you Ben Witherington III’s What’s in the Word: Rethinking the Socio-Rhetorical Character of the New Testament for free! Just use coupon code BW3BAYLOR to get your copy.

Understand Scripture in context

What’s in the Word, written in Witherington’s usual clear, clever style, is a collection of essays on topics like “oral texts,” pseudepigrapha, New Testament word studies in light of their socio-rhetorical backgrounds, and more. Preachers and teachers will especially appreciate how Witherington’s work helps establish exegetical study historically.

James D.G. Dunn once said that the autonomy of the biblical text is an illusion, and that Scripture will always be read in a context, whether modern or historical. In What’s in the Word, Witherington explains how the recognition of the oral and socio-rhetorical character of the New Testament and its environment necessitates a change in how we read the New Testament literature.

Use coupon code BW3BAYLOR through June 16 to get What’s in the Word for free!

P.S. Through June 16, you can also enter to win the entire Ben Witherington III Collection. Head over to the Logos Academic blog and enter to win before it’s too late!
